The buzz: “If you plan cities for cars and traffic, you get cars and traffic. If you plan for people and places, you get people and places” (Fred Kent). By 2030, 2/3 of humanity will live in urban areas and megacities with 10+ million populations will increase by 65%. Good news: cities bring innovation and economic progress. Not-so-good-news: cities are bogged down by traffic congestion, aging infrastructures, quality of life threats.

Dante Ricci, SAP: “Be the change you wish to see in the world” (Gandhi). Join us for Urban Mobility and Smart Cities – Part 2.
